Where at - in the corporate office?

In Reply to: you must really suck at your job - EXCELLENT MT SKILLS HERE...sittin pretty

or maybe you are management and get paid by the hour. I am guessing probably the hourly paid since you do seem to have a lot of time on your hands chatting all day.

I have 16 years experience and I did not maintain a job for this long with no skill.

Perhaps you should work on some SOCIAL SKILLS - you think? I have always heard if you're good at something you don't have toot your own horn, but you go right ahead and sing your own praises.

Why not call the corporate office / payroll? nm
All of Focus is indian-based, except their corporate office in MA.
That is a smoke screen to make it look like a US based company. Imagine, indian MTs editing you an American MT with 10+ years of experience, and changing correct terminology to incorrect terminology. I could go on and on, but I won't.

All tech support is india-based, all QA is india-based, most mts are in india, except for the MTs here in USA working for them, all of their account managers are in India working the night shift (their time), day time (our time).

The corporate media
they are ALL ABOUT protecting other corporations - and censoring the news is what they do best. Just look at bush.
Ola Corporate Services
A most excellent company. The owner is very helpful and friendly. Great group to work for.
This is a perfect example of either corporate
We feel hopeful and excited that maybe, MAYBE, if the cosmos and stars align and unite, our employers may toss us a blessed $25 gift card, and you DARE BASH THAT HOPE???  I hope to get one as it will feed my kids for a decent LUNCH for once.  You bash us with our hopes and its A-OK for corporate execs to DEMAND their Christmas bonuses which generally run in the 6 DIGITS, and often 7.  Yup, that's not greedy, that's not childish, but a bunch of honest, hard working trusting soles transcribing for the health and safety of patients world wide are CHILDISH AND GREEDY for hoping for a crumb of the MONEY THEY MADE by the skin of their fingers for their CEOs.  Get a life. You are either swill of the earth or one of the CEOs typing with 1 dirty finger on your laptop in your corporate jet.  Fly off!
Corporate mentality
I am sure at least some of you saw on the news about the hospital shootings in Calif. yesterday. I was just talking to my neighbor today, who is a Occupational Therapist there. She was saying how bad the atmosphere in the entire hospital has been for the past 8 months. Somewhere along the line I think the compassion and caring has gone out of corporate healthcare. It is only about the almightly dollar now. This particular facility has been very secretative about lay-offs in the past months. People get called in and told you have 15 minutes to be out of the building. What ever happened to two weeks notice, they want their employees to give them two weeks notice before they quit but when they want to get rid of someone they just smack them in the face with it. The rumors were flying that there were going to be more layoffs and the shooter, whom everyone says was a really great guy, was apparently stressed out over the fact that he would be let go. It is a sad situation all over but if the corporations would care more about their employees and less about saving a buck morale in this country would be alot better than it is right now. My neighbor said they brought in a new CEO and that is when things got really bad. The real tragedy is that the manager of the department he worked in had just come up with a plan by changing schedules, and cutting costs in some other areas he was not going to have to lay anyone off. Everyone is saying if only the guy had talked to his boss. 8 kids are now without fathers. The hospital spokesperson steadfastly denied any future layoffs but the rumor is they are going to happen in June, it will be interesting to see how they do that after they got on nationwide TV and said no more layoffs are planned. A really tragic story, the guys who were all wonderful fathers gone for nothing.
not only the corporate mentality of sm
the way they treat employees but also the way the medical profession treats patients.

I have a chronic illness that puts me in the hospital every so often and I am telling you the care (or lack of) is ridiculous. Hubby works for this particular hospital for the last almost 20 years and he says he fears the day when some idiot comes in and starts mayhem. We did have an incident three years ago where some guy whose son had died went to the office where the doctor was at and shot and killed him. Worked out that he wasn't so ticked at the doc but he was ticked at the care his son got in the hospital and took it out on the doc. I am to the point I think the whole medical profession is something to stay away from.
Ola Corporate Services
I just want to praise this owner and company.  I have worked there for a couple of years now, and she is awesome!  Very easy to get along with--work is always available in whatever amount I request--and pay is ALWAYS on time and no hassles.  I love working here!
The main office was in Bolingbrook but they built an office in Yorkville last fall. SM
I think that the owners live in Yorkville, so it was built close to their house. Nice office, just pretty far out.
Sorry, I dont. Maybe call Corporate.
Info on OLA Corporate Services
in California. I have never heard of this one! Anyone have any info on it?  Thanks!
Don't forget the corporate director of HR
He's a piece of work too, totally nuts!
I personally never give the corporate contact as
a reference. I always give a supervisor that I had as reference as they CAN give a reference. Many supervisors do not stay at companies and it is always better that they talk to someone who knows your work. HR has to go by the rules of just verification. You can give references though so get together with your supervisors and see if they will either give you their contact info or a letter of recommendation. That always helps. Right now with all the MTs out there looking, I would try to get my feet planted firmly on the ground as soon as possible.
Corporate greed is driving it right out of existence
can afford to live in the United States and stay in MT. More & more of us are getting out. Some, like me, are trapped... been at it for too long (30+ years), and most of us are now what you would call the Working Poor. Back in my 20's when I came to that 'crossroads', I should've gone with my friend and learned court-reporting. So far their jobs haven't been teetering on the brink of extinction (yet), like ours are in MT.
Spoken like a true corporate sell-out.

Lisa and other corporate "hacks". You really outdid yourself on this one.
Been reading and watching a lot, but your posts are definitely the best I have ever seen as far as being totally inaccurate and misleading.

My first statement is that if Transcend is so ashamed of outsourcing/offshoring why do they do it. They need to be upfront about what they are doing and quit telling these lies. They do not just offshore work because there is no available help. They offshore work because it is cheaper. Too many nights I see 20 to 50 reports go flying off my screen while I work and I am left with nothing to do for the rest of my shift. If anyone cared about me and my having enough work, this would not be happening.

Transcend has publically stated that they use offshoring because it is cheaper - not because there is a lack of available help. They said they would not take work away from the domestics; but I guess my status is so low that I am not even considered a domestic. And your statement below that they would not use offshore if there was enough domestic help is completely absurd.

You and those other Fony ADHI people who have that stupid F after your name - those of you who think you are more important and better educated than the doctors - need to face reality. You picked up the phone after 'your public meeting and called Larry'. Who do you think you are? The most important person in the world? You are a brown-noser, trying to get settled into management by hobnobbing with the bigwigs. Did you ever stop to think that Larry might have far more important things to do than to chit-chat with you? Well, I guess it worked, you dug your way into a team lead position didn't you. And with that position you know just like everyone else knows that offshoring is not going away no matter how many state-side MLS there are in the company. You have just lost every ounce of credibility you may have had.

And how can you say that offshoring was your biggest objection to this merger. You obviously came over with TRS and they have a school in Barbados so even more work can be offshored. Did you object to them having offshore associates?

Lisa, its time for you baby ostriches to grow up and pull your head out of the sand and face reality. We do not believe you or anyone else that is trying to pass off these type of statements as true, just like we do not believe that we can make anywhere close to what we made with straight transcription by doing that VR stuff, especially with the problem-riddled platform that Transcend uses.

Things might settle down a little faster if you would just be honest.
I worked 30 years out in the corporate world
Suits are the same everywhere.  They sit on their asses in their fancy offices and rake in the dough and make the peons beneath them make their coffee and run their errands.  They rob from the poor and give to the rich!  I've talked to them, covered their butts, lied for them and even gave them sexual favors back when sexual harrassment was just a big word!  You must be married to one or you wouldn't be acting as if they poop golden eggs!  They produce NOTHING but spin tactics and good old boy networking!
If you are an AAMT member, they have a mailing list that corporate sm
members can use two to three times a year.
Just curious, is the MQ Nashville office the old Lanier office? nm
I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open
October with everyone of the admin staff in one place, these problems do not occur any more.
Person from corporate contacting me via email regarding my posting today
I have no reason to meet with you, have a good job and certainly do not care to discuss with you where you send your work. I know what I read and it was quoted by a top official at your company. Even though you said the newspaper slanted the story like they wanted it to read, I saw quotes and never saw where the paper did a retracation of the story.
Can't get paid in the office if you don't work in the office.
JLG has MT's working at home, not in the office, not to mention working out of state.  The mail is the only way to get paid since they have temporarily suspended direct deposit.  The only ones getting paid on time are the ones that do work in the office, like the management and people answering the phone. 
Closed FW office, Indianapolis office too. nm
Which office?
been through three office changes in the last 10

Went from 7 cents a line to now 9.5 cpl, on this current account going on three years, the one before that, five years, and the one before that two.  My opinion, i'm a good MT and they treat me as such.  Do you work your schedule?  Do you do PLUS lines while maintaining quality?  Are you up their butt constantly asking for raises?  Take tons of time off?  They are weeding out the awful MTs by starving them of work!!! 

Which office is this.
Are you an MT in the office currently
I do not know which office you are from; if you are hearing rumblings,it is probably true. Many offices are closing and I do not know why. I was told my office was closing because there was no need for it?? It closed this September. Is your office being transferred to another region?

I am sure you will keep your position but at what cost I do not know. I am still waiting for the PACKET to come and I am nervous about that myself.

You are not alone. We are all feeling this re-structuring and in my opinion things do not look good.

Try not to let it get to you too much. MQ is not worth it.
I have been upset for 3 months now and will be making a big decision on what to do in the next few weeks.

Hope things work out for you.
what office are you with? nm
I sent one to the office, too. nm
TT office help
I have had plenty of work too. I guess it depends what accounts you are on. As far as office help, I always get a prompt response to any question or need I have. Why would it matter how much office work they have?
TT office help
I mean why would it matter how much office help they have, duh!
They also have an office in ....sm
southwestern Indiana, but when you call that office you speak to an Indian male. Go figure.
THAT MQ office does sound bad!
Keep in mind, they are not all the same.  In 7 years of working for them, I've never had an experience remotely like that.  My immediate supervisor will respond to my emails within the hour and my regional manager will respond at least the same day, usually within a couple of hours.  I have never not received a pay check on time.  I don't doubt she is telling the truth, but she got a bad apple.  Doesn't mean they're all that way!
MQ Dallas Office
Actually, the work is not difficult.  I'm one of the highest leveled MT's at Spheris (back again) and when I was with MQ I started off on one of the most difficult accounts in the SW region.  I found it actually to be very easy.  But, to each their own.  Its just my opinion.  Being an IC person, you may not have as much to say about all the communication (or should I say lack there of) from that office.  You hardly ever get updates (especially if you are use to seeing them) and in order to find out if there is OT available, it's like pulling teeth to find out.  Payroll in that office is horrendous.  You email for a question regarding Payroll and it will take them a good 2 weeks to answer.  You call and you almost always get the voicemail, which also takes them 2 weeks to get back to you.  You leave a message with someone and they always says they'll get right back to you, but low and behold they never do!!  The supers aren't that bad, but the higher ups are the problem down there!   I heard a few of the other region were wonderful to work for, just wish I had been given one of those regions to work in and I might have been a pretty happy camper!!   Good luck and hope all goes well for you.
Me too .. it is with the SW/Dallas office ?? NM
Warminster PA MQ office sm
Can anyone tell me anything about this office? I am still debating on whether to turn in paperwork or not.
Cannot recommend this office at all!
I have been there for a long time, and it just gets worse. They have lost so many accounts that I seem to constantly be learning something new, and I do acute care, any specialty. No money to be made this way. In addition, the office personnel have changed so much that I don't even know who to call with certain matters. It is beyond frustrating!

The only high point has been the excellent computer room staff, but I figure they will probably all be let go in favor of calling 1-800-DICTATE or whatever.

If you have other options, I suggest exercising them! I can E-mail you if you need more info.
MQ Monrovia office sm
With all the MQ horror stories I see on this board, the Monrovia office MTs always seem happy.  I don't understand.  It's the same company, so why such a difference?  Don't all offices all have to adhere to the same company guidelines? It almost sounds like each MQ office is a completely different company.  If I apply for a position at MQ, what factors determine which office I'll be assigned to?  Or is it just pot luck?  I don't get it. 
Ohio MQ office
Welcome aboard.  I've been with them for 10 yrs, now on DocQscribe, love it, never ever out of work...we need the help desperately
What can you tell me about the Warminster MQ office?
The good, the bad, and the ugly are all appreciated. Thank you very much.

Which office do you work out of.
What office were you hired at?
Just curious... is this the new pay plan?
Office Politics
Thank you all for your comments, but I would like to say....I really want to preserve my dignity and integrity. There are some very special people at OSi, some of whom are very good friends. I am truly blessed for making those friends. I did my best at my job at QA and for whatever reasons I was fired from OSi does not change that. I loved my job and the MTs and the accounts that I worked on. I only wish the best for my friends that are still there. Losing this job is nothing compared to losing my spouse, so this too will pass. I am tough and I will be fine and I thank you all for your support.
which MQ office running out? sm
Monrovia, Ca. How were you
informed of work shortage?
Sorry this is the Amherst office of MQ.
St. Louis office
I work for the St. Louis office. They are very flexible but I hate the DQS platform. The old one was much better. I stay with a national because you can work anywhere in the country without being tied down, but when I say I am a slave, that's what I feel like. All I ever do is work to try to get my lines-- I don't have a life any more. I don't spend money foolishly--I am just trying to survive. This MT business has really gone down the toilet ever since the "being paid by production only" and the sweatshop mentality began.
phoenix office
no, Dallas office..I believe.

I'm with the Nashville office...
I haven't really heard anything good or bad about them. I've searched but came up with nothing. I'm hoping that's a good sign since the bad ones seem to come up a lot. Which office are you with?
great office
I was tranferred to the SantaAna office permanently over 8 months ago,(my office closed and I did not want to go to Foxboro for fear of lack of work) before that I had been helping the SantaAna office for over 2 years in 2 of their accts. I was doing this because my office in the NE had no work. I always have work and am very happy with the office, especially after talking to some of the MT's that were transferred to Foxboro and Amherst. I really lucked out by going to a CA office
You must know the office number
Hello there,
I will be at the office all day tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. Would love to talk to you again.
